How to Boost Your Sexual Confidence and Enhance Pleasure

People are so focused on increasing their desire for sex that they forget one simple fact… you’re only going to desire sex if you’re having good sex!

So what can we do to improve sexual satisfaction? Today I’m joined by a sexpert who conducted a huge research study that examines just that. We are going to chat about what she discovered to be the most important predictors of sexual satisfaction. Get your pen and paper ready, because you’re going to want to take notes!

Dr. Tara is a sex and relationship expert, award-winning researcher, and professor of sexual communication. She has her Ph.D. in human communication and received her tenure at the age of 33, now working as a professor of relational and sexual communication at California State University Fullerton.

Additionally, she is a sexual communication and relationship coach at LuvBites and host of the Luvbites by Dr. Tara podcast, which focuses on sexual wellness and sexploration.

Her expertise has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health, and Insider, among others. Her 2019 TEDx Talk entitled Become Sexually Powerful highlights her 5,000-participant study examining predictors of sexual satisfaction, and her journey from an anxious immigrant from Thailand to a confident sexpert. I am so thrilled to have her on the show today!
